Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Memory stick I have got several photo's on my memory stick, and have done what i usualy do to get them onto the computer. When i try to view them on the camera it comes up saying memory stick error and a code C13.01. So i now can't get them transferred onto my computer. i do hope somebody can help and i hope i can at least get them developed, rather than have to lose the photo's. J Wright

Have you actually loaded them to the computer then loaded them back onto the stick? Cameras cant read images very often when loaded back from the computer- because they changed image type from EXIF[camera] to JPEG normal computer image file. This should not prevent you getting the printed however.

    OK- just clearing that point.
    So the next thing to do is prove is it the camera or the stick?
    Some more questions
    1. what do you get when you plug camera to computer?[you should see another drive icon in my computer]
    If you do not get this then it could still be camera or stick.
    So Can you take the stick someplace else to test?
    A friends computer or a card reader- or an in store processing station.
    Or do you have another memory stick to try in the Camera.
    We are trying to establish exactly which is the faulty item here camera or stick

Why can't I access my photos on my computer from sony memory stick pro duo 4GB but can view on camera?

You may be able to get the images from the card. try using a program called BadCopy Pro. I used it a few times to get back images from memory cards that would not work on any computer. Good Luck.

I have a memory card that still has memory an my camera is telling me to reinsert the memory stick

Wasn't quite sure what you question was, lemekaralph. Is there nothing said about why the stick should be reinserted? The best idea, based on what I think you're asking, may be to either use a USB card reader or a laptop or PC that has a card reader to load any photos off to a computer and then right click on the stick in the Computer/My Computer Window and click on format. It will clear the card completely and then allow you to put the card into the camera normally.
Make sure you've copied the photos onto the PC if you want to keep them before formatting and, after the stick is accpeted by the camera, reformat it again IN the camera - do that because Sony suggest formatting for best results should be done in the camera.
Good Luck!

Transferring photo from computer to memory stick

Many cameras will not let you write to the card. Try using a card reader, which will make the memory card appear to the computer as a separate hard drive.

Please try this, turn on your camera, insert a blank memory stick, slide the side switch down to the lowest point, should say “No file in this folder” click on menu, click on Setup, use the arrows and go to Memory Stick, choose “Copy” choose “Album” the “OK” this will copy all you pictures from the Album in your camera to your memory stick.

Hope this helps

Photos not going onto memory stick

Storage defaults to internal memory (32MB) when Memory Stick Duo is not detected/recognised. Check to see if the Memory Stick's write protect tab is unlocked, or try another Memory Stick.
